It's sort of a alias/symlink node to one of the EBus bridges in
your U30. It's not the only one known to exist but the others I'm
aware of at least consist of a "name" and a "reg" property and
therefore don't cause problems with the current code. This one
should be save to just ignore in FreeBSD but the question is
how you can install FreeBSD in the first place. From the above
output it's not entirely clear if it refers to the unused EBus
bridge on the add-on HME card which normally is disabled by the
firmware or the onboard one which is used for the serial ports
etc. (but which is more likely). At a first step you could try to
remove the add-on HME card, if the node refers to the unused EBus
bridge on this card it should just disappear then. If this doesn't
help you could try to update to the latest firmware revision
which is 3.27 and available from:
